When it comes to travelling, people would like to save and minimise their expenses to explore their travelling destination. And that is good as well. If you save on one trip you can plan for the next trip. There are several destinations both domestics and foreign to visit. If we talk about the domestic destination, there are numerous fascinating and beautiful places that you can explore in India. One amongst them is Dalhousie. It is a small, but beautiful hill station. Nestled in the Chamba District of Himachal Pradesh, it is a must visit destination. Situated on 5 hills, this place is a popular honeymooner's paradise. Spellbinding snow-covered Dhauladhar mountains, surrounded by abundant natural & pristine beauty, there is no doubt that Dalhousie gives you the enchanting views from every nook and corner. If this time you have planned to visit this destination here are some tips to reduce your travel expenses :
- Travel in off season
Although the best time to visit Dalhousie is from March to May, I would suggest you to go either before or after. The reason is that during this time tourism is at height, and prices are hiked. You will get accommodations at high prices and commuting will cost you too much. In off season rates are comparatively cheaper and you can negotiate as well.
- Stay in Budget Hotels
Avoid staying in expensive hotels and search for hotels that charge low prices. As you are going to explore the place and not live in hotel rooms it is futile to expend so much on accommodation.
- Use Public Transport
For the place is new to you it is advisable to use public transport as the charges are fixed and you have the assurity to reach the correct location. Whereas, if you opt to hire a private cab they will charge you lavishly and can easily fool you.
- Try to Travel by Train
Travelling by train saves you a lot. Moreover, you can have great fun in train journey. Your actual exploration begins within the train. Though flights save time but they increase your expense and reduce your experience.
- Eat at Good but Cheap Eateries
Local restaurants offer good quality food at reasonable price. The food provided is very tasty and you get an authentic flavour. They serve a good portion of a dish to satisfy your hunger.
- Choose Nearby Locations
Book an accommodation in an area which is close to the sightseeing venues. Prepare an itinerary before leaving. Plan the trip in a manner that you cover the destinations nearby in a single day, instead of going haphazardly. A well-planned trip will help you save both time and money.
